Microsoft and Interop

Joel on Software refutes the Information Week article that skewers Microsoft regarding Interop with Linux. Apparently you can order a free copy of SFU 3.0 (Services for Unix) or try it out via TS (?). There is also a beta version of SFU 3.5 available over on the main SFU website. One of the nicest features of SFU is the Interix subsystem that microsoft bought a couple years ago and continues improving. Check out this page of ports for SFU 3.5 beta.



PDC go-er Tom Mertens talks about System.Search. One of the technologies that needs to be well used and implemented to make your PC as easy to search as the web. You can have a look at the System.Search APIs on Longhorn MSDN.
